The Fairfax County Health Department will be hosting 7 vaccination clinics between June 6 to July 25. Childhood vaccines will be offered free of charge.

To schedule an appointment, call 703-246-6010, TTY 711.

Visitors:
-limit the number of individuals you bring to the appointment
-everyone 2 years of age and older are required to wear face coverings.
-The Health Department will be conducting temperature checks at the entrance
-visitors will be spaced at least 6 feet apart
-vaccination stations will be separated by partitions.

“Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve seen a large drop in vaccination rates across the region. This is deeply concerning, especially as we begin easing stay-at-home restrictions – children who are not up to date on their immunizations will be at greater risk for vaccine-preventable illnesses, including measles, chicken pox and whooping cough.” – Shauna Severo, Health Department Director of Health Services

To address the growing number of unvaccinated and under-vaccinated children, we will host 7 free vaccination clinics in the coming weeks. Learn more: https://bit.ly/3eQNmON

Eating Healthy at Home During COVID-19.

Eating healthy while at home is important, especially when a stay-at-home order is in effect. 🏠
“It’s a good time to have family time in the kitchen and have everyone participate in food preparation, which can also a good learning opportunity for kids. They can measure, stir, wash produce, and contribute to meals in additional ways. Participating gets them invested in the food so they are more likely to eat it.” 🍎🥦🍌🍓

Kroger And Giant Food Will Limit Number Of Customers In Stores | WAMU

"Kroger and Giant Food announced Tuesday that they will begin to limit the number of customers in their stores to allow for social distancing measures. The move comes after weeks of requests made by grocery workers to cap how many people are in the store at once.

Kroger, the parent company of Harris Teeter and Giant Food, says by the end of the week it will cut the occupancy of Harris Teeter to half, and Giant Food to 20%.

Giant Food will also implement one-way aisle traffic next week. Arrow markers on the floor will designate traffic direction through the aisles and associates will be available to point customers in the correct directions."

https://wamu.org/story/20/04/07/kroger-and-giant-food-will-limit-number-of-customers-in-stores/

The changes come as workers at many grocery stores have asked to be classified as "essential" so they can have better access to tests. Nationwide, at least four grocery store workers have died due to the coronavirus.
